All of that should now be put to rest.
"I've just been advised not to talk about anything, but let everyone know that everything is fine, and I will be signing on Wednesday," Watt wrote in a text message to Irish Eyes.
Watt verbally committed to Notre Dame back in July, and is the top-ranked recruit in the Irish's 2009 class.
There was talk that Watt was possibly interested in Iowa down the stretch, but the Glen Ellyn, Ill., product took a trip to South Bend on Sunday to spend time with Notre Dame's new offensive line coach Frank Verducci. Watt's trip went so well, he ended up staying the night.
